Whatever your cycling experience you're welcome to come along and join our group.  We are touring club not a racing club so you'll find our pace leisurely, with rests and cafe stops throughout the ride.  No one is ever left behind and there is alway someone to help with punctures or mechanical problems


We are a local group of Cycling UK, the national cyclists' organisation. You don't have to be a member of Cycling UK to try us out, but if you became a regular rider with us you need to join.  You can join online here.
